Summary
Ensorcelled princesses . . . a frog that speaks . . . a magical hind - Newbery Medal winner Robin McKinley opens a door into an enchanted world in this collection of original and retold fairy tales. The last mortal kingdom before the unmeasured sweep of Faerieland begins has at best held an uneasy truce with its unpredictable neighbor. There is nothing to show a boundary, at least on the mortal side of it; and if any ordinary human creature ever saw a faerie - or at any rate recognized one - it was never mentioned; but the existence of the boundary and of faeries beyond it is never in doubt either. So begins "The Stolen Princess," the first story of this collection, about the meeting between the human princess Linadel and the faerie prince Donathor. "The Princess and the Frog" concerns Rana and her unexpected alliance with a small, green, flipper-footed denizen of a pond in the palace gardens. "The Hunting of the Hind" tells of a princess..
Summary
A collection of stories--both imaginative retellings of classic tales as well as McKinley's own original works--includes "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" and "The Frog Prince"
